Am              E       Am
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Am                 E       Am
Saying, This land is condemned
Am       E       G      D
All the way from New Orleans
D     F G Am
To Jerusalem


 Am         E             Am
I traveled through East Texas
Am          E       Am
Where many martyrs fell
Am             E       G         D
And I know no one can sing the blues
D     F     G     Am
Like Blind Willie McTell


Am                 E        Am
Well, I heard that hoot owl singing
Am             E              Am
As they were taking down the tents
Am          E        G      D
The stars above the barren trees
D        F     G   Am
Were his on---ly audience


Am             E     Am
Them charcoal gypsy maidens
Am              E         Am
Can strut their feathers well
Am      E       G        D
But nobody can sing the blues
D     F    G        Am
Like Blind Willie McTell


Am         E               Am
See them big plantations burning
Am          E             Am
Hear the cracking of the whips
Am         E      G        D
Smell that sweet magnolia blooming
D         F         G       Am
See the ghosts of slavery ships


Am                E       Am
I can hear them tribes a-moaning
Am         E          Am
Hear that undertakers bell
Am    E       G         D
No--body can sing the blues
D      F    G      Am
Like Blind Willie McTell


Am              E       Am
Theres a woman by the river
Am         E                   Am
With some fine young handsome man
Am    E         G        D
Hes dressed up like a squire
D           F      G       Am
Bootlegged whiskey in his hand


Am                   E       Am
Theres a chain gang on the highway
Am      E               Am
I can hear them rebels yell
Am      E      G                D
And I know no one can sing the blues
D    F     G       Am
Like Blind Willie McTell


Am           E       Am
Well, God is in His heaven
Am           E         Am
And we all want whats His
Am              E         G          D
But power and greed and corruptible seed
D     F     G       Am
Seem to be all that there is


Am        E       Am
Im gazing out the window
Am     E          Am
Of the St. James Hotel
Am      E      G                 D
And I know no one can sing the blues
D      F    G      Am
Like Blind Willie McTell

Nice and proper tab! Fits very good if you sing along in the style of Tom Morello:
